I'm a first time Pontiac G6 GT Coupe owner. I want to do some tasteful modifications and will have a few questions, I'm sure.
I'll post my questions in the correct forums.
I'm looking forward to hearing from other G6 owners.
Thanks! Bill Brown

Your coupe looks awesome with the Hammerhead Spoiler.
That's a "must have" for me. Looks naked without it, in my opinion.
Just ordered mine "painted" from car.id, should be here within 2 weeks.


Thanks again for the kind welcomes

Here are some pictures of my Imperial Blue G6 before any mods.
I have a hammerhead spoiler ordered along with a smoked sunroof visor and smoked vent visors.

First of all, what's a 09.5 front bumper? There aren't many other G6's around here to compare it to. What are the diferences?

My paint code is: 37U/WA403P Imperial Blue Metallic Clearcoat

Is that a rare color?

37U = midnight blue metallic....

Aftermarket paint companies can call it whatever color they want.
For example mine is called Arrival Blue by half the internet/aftermarket paint companies.

But Pontiac called it Electric Blue Metallic.

Pontiac also called yours Midnight Blue Metallic. If your car came with your window sticker you will see that is what it is called.

You can call it what you want though....just thought youd like to know.

No it is not rare. That color replaced mine.

Half way through 2009 they changed the front and rear facia on the G6.
There are two reasons I like the 05-09 fascia better (although you can see others like it more):

1. There are no aftermarklet grills. Your stuck with what it is. GM made a recessed grill for the standard 05-09 grill that looks awesome.

2. The 05-09 lower grill allows more air in to cool both engine & feed the intake. The 09.5-10 doesnt.

3. The ground effects kit (by both GM & Razzi) will not fit it.

The diff is the grills are bigger on yours. more sharper angles....and the lower trim is different.

The back fascia looks better IMHO on the 09.5-10...UNLESS you get the GM body kit.
In which case it PWNS all!! lololol.....

Thanks for the great info.
I'm still learning about the G6's.
I really like my front bumper better than most others I've seen around here. I've already ordered this hammerhead spoiler in the 37U/WA403P Imperial Blue Metallic Clearcoat as they have the color listed, will the color match my car?

I sure hope so!

If it has 37U then your prolly good to go. You might drop them a line to verify though cause Imperial Blue was used by Pontiac but not for the G6's....
and it was not your color.

But you illustrate my point on these aftermarket people messing up the names....
Look what carid calls the blue in 2005:

http://www.carid.com/paintcodes.php?make=Pontiac&model=G6&year=2005

They call it Arrival Blue...Yet look what Pontiac calls it:







Now lets look at the year they introduced Midnight Blue Metallic -2008:


What does Carid call it?
http://www.carid.com/paintcodes.php?make=Pontiac&model=G6&year=2008

Now what does Pontiac call it?




Interesting eh? Prolly why Pontiac went out of business... lol ;)
